Yesterday we got two solid hours of Grampy’s time on tape. He went to mass in the morning, so we got about a half-hour in before lunch and another half-hour afterwards, making our way through the envelope marked “the 60’s”. I left so that he could take his nap and returned to the house with a pile of photos to scan, most of which I got done. We headed back up at 3:30 to continue with both envelopes from the 70’s, and as a bonus, we got about fifteen minutes of Grampy talking to my Dad about his parents and grandparents.
I’m heading back over today to talk about the balance of the photos, which consist mainly of the 80’s and anything else we didn’t get to. I’m going to try to power through that relatively quickly, and then get back to just talking with Grampy about anything pre-1950 I can think of while the tape is rolling. Then, one more evening of scanning, and we’ll call this expedition done.
Fuck, I missed Lost last night. What happened?
